Explore the Patuxent: Teen Leadership Paddle
The Teen Leadership Paddle is a week long canoeing expedition geared towards high school students. The program gives teens a chance to practice leadership & teamwork skills as they navigate the river, water quality testing, plant community studies, help with a stewardship project, camping by the riverside and prepare meals together.
Paddlers enjoy a unique, on-the-water experience that features educational programming and builds a strong stewardship ethic for the river and its natural resources. Campers will become immersed in Patuxent River issues and explore their role in solving them and they end the week with a presentation to county and state leaders, friends and family.
